2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2007 Poured a clear amber with a solid amount of carbonation rising and a moderate off-white head. Aroma and flavor both picked up pumpkin pie (pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon). Flavor was rather muddled, picking up some pie spices and fainter pumpkin meat. Almost syrupy through the front half of the palate, and spicy toward the finish. This came across as artificial.. otherwise decent.

GABF. Say what you want to say about Blue Moon/Coors; I like this stuff. Pours a nice dark-gold, with an aroma of pumpkin pie. Flavor is a liquid pumpkin pie like mom used to make. Palate is a bit watery. Good beer-- regardless of what anyone says.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Served at 61°, probably a little warm, but my beer fridges freezer can do no better in a short time. Used the NB worthy glass. Pours red with a orange tint, small off-white head. Aroma is light malt, some light hops, all in all pretty light. The flavor is light malt, some citrus, kinda caramelly followed by some pumpkin and spice, then a clean, easy finish. The pumpkin was very apparent in the first sip, but it starts to just blend in and add some to the flavor., I like the pumpkin aspect, but the beer is one step above a macro "premiunm’ beer; and look who makes this Coors. I am glad I got another pumpkin beer in my mix a six. Slightly above average on the moutfeel.

Tasted much like Blue Moon’s Belgian White Ale. A slight hint of Pumpkin, but could taste other spices. Made the unfortunate move of drinking this after having another beer, so the flavor was not completely realized.

Bottle, cloudy orange amber pour. Somehwat nutmeggy spiced aroma, with a touch of malt and a touch of pumpkin - strikes me as a bit Belgian in character actually. Not any more pumpkin in flavor. Mostly spices and some kind of bready yeasty flavors, and some malts. Interesting, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber, with an adequate thin head, and many bubbles rising to the top of the beer. Initial aroma is pumpkin pie spice with, lower grade beer in the background. The initial aroma is mildly sweet and quite pleasant and festive. Flavor is ginger and molasses cookies, with very nice amber malt background. Very nice balance. I’m quite impressed; when I bought this beer the salesman said it was only average. Nice medium mouthfeel, great roasty malt, yet spiced with cloves, cinnamon, and the decent yeast strain, yet without being too much. Quite delicious. "Good beer after 5 Fat Tires at Native watching football on a Sunday."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slick orange. White head. Water around the edges. Very belgian nose. Yeasty dough funk. No pumpkin to speak of No bitterness only a vinous fruity quality. Very one-dimensional. Flavors are a bit better. Yeasty funk is nice and the dough is pleasant as well. No bitterness. Crystal malt all the way. The pumpkin is very restrained and subdued, which I like. It’s not alike adrinking a freaking potpourri basket which is always good regardless of what you like. However all in all a little boring. Ehh...

This beer tastes just like Blue Moon with a bit of pumpkin pie filling added. No better or worse than the original blue moon.

Deep orange. Yeasty nose with a little funk. Very mild beer with weak aromas. Sweetness was a bit too much as well, with virtually no bitterness to speak of. Pumpkin pie sweetness was solid in the background.
